With great storytelling backed by solid research, Buchanan writes with precision and flair, creating vivid characters and memorable scenes. You'll love this novel. - Marshall Cook, author, the Monona Quinn mystery series
Ms. Buchanan has not only captured the events of the Vigilantes, but the spirit as well. I was hooked from the first page by a captivating writing style. This book will appeal to the western rancher as well as the New York literary circle. - Sam Morton, author, Where the Rivers Run North
